Personally, I enjoyed Bully more than other Rockstar games (so really, GTA). The "world" doesn't allow much exploration, but all the areas you would expect a young kid to travel to via bike are there.
Even though the title might put folk off these days, I played this when I was younger and felt no inclination to be a bully myself. If anything, it shows that other side of things, and as Jimmy you do get the opportunity to be the good guy and get good grades, if you want.
The Story is about a kid named Jimmy Hopkin who has been kicked out of several of his previous school, so his parents abandon him at a private school called Bullworth Academy. He's basically 'the new kid' in a school full of bullies, nerds, prefects and mean teachers.
The graphics in this game is much better than the old ps2 graphics with better facial models and other special effects. The game and graphics have a 'nostalgic' feel as this game was originally released in 2006.
There is many missions and side missions as this is an open-world game you can do what you want and when you want, you can go to class if you want the classes are just mini-games. When i first started playing i found the controls a bit awkward but you get used to it.
The whole 'playing field' is massive and has lots of content and you won't get bored going from one place to another. The game is sometimes glitchy and crashes but is OK if u save regularly.
This is the first PC game I've played and now i see it's better than console gaming. I really recommend you play this game, I've played for hours but have only finished 10 percent. I give this game a 7.75 out of 10.
To start with, the DirectX installation given on the disk is actually incomplete. When you try to install the game it will try to install DirectX and simply get stuck there. I left it going for a good half hour at first before realising something was up. The solution, by the way, is to go into task manager and manually end the DirectX installer process. The installer should then move on to the next stage. It took me 3 tries to get it to work however. The installation process is incredibly slow, it took about an hour and a half for me (in comparison, Crysis 2 installed in about 10 minutes from it's disk). When you actually install the game feel free to try and play it but it has a bunch of crashing bugs and most players cannot even progress past the first cutscene. To fix this you have to download the newest patch (search for it, or look on Rockstar's website) and install that. Once fully patched up and running the game works pretty much as normal, crashing on occasion but if you save every day it won't be a problem.
The game itself is great fun. You play as a schoolchild called Jimmy Hopkins and get up to all sorts of mischief. The game isn't really about being a 'bully', as you help people out and generally fight against the bullies. I'd recommend it, but only if you have the time and patience to get it to work.
As for gaming graphics, it depends on your system. Native resolution looks fantastic with Anti-Alias and Shadows on, smoothing the edges and casting pools of black light behind Jimmy and his other schoolmates. This game is more about helping those being bullied than being a bully yourself, so it's not as ethically off-key as people think.
Overall, a fantastic purchase. It arrived within 3 days in brand new condition.

Nothing wrong with the game. I found it really boring... But I'm more into the simulator games...
The game came sealed which is also a good sign.
This game is by far the best I've played, it takes me back to when I first had a ps2 and I love it. Also if you have windows 7 64-bit you will have to download the patch to update... Read morePublished on 2 Feb. 2013 by Laura
